TN: 2016 Carlisle Zinfandel Montafi Vineyard

Crimson in color. 15% ABV. Awesome nose of red fruits, plums and spice. Medium body with exquisite acidity. Charming, fruit forward and perfectly balanced. Crisp and fresh. Cherry, raspberry liqueur, earth and pepper on the palate. The finish is exceptionally long and seamless. I’ve liked Carlisle for almost two decades now but Mike really seemed to take things to a new level starting with the ’16 vintage. Best over the next 2-4 years and absolutely delicious served at cellar temperature on a hot, sultry night in Seattle.

My rating: 95 points.
